PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of accounts and debtors and creditors of the gold beaters and gold merchants Federigo and Alfonso Gondi, sons of Giovanni di Leonardo Gondi, for the years 1506-1537. Often includes the nature of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals or institutions that hold the debt or credit, the most important and frequent being various members of the Antinori family and the comune of Florence, business counterparts of the Gondi brothers, doing business with them for over thirty years. In particular, the comune relied on gold artisans and merchants like the Gondi to acquire large amounts of precious metals to use for minting. Most of the transactions are related to the revenues and expenses derived from gold beating. Debts and credits with the Antinori and the Comune of Florence, as well as with other gilders and gold beaters, are common, and so are transactions with workers and employees of the family business. Expenses to purchase raw materials are also present.
